How about that second period in Brooklyn?

Shortly after falling behind 3-2 to the New York Islanders, the Carolina Hurricanes rattled off four unanswered goals in under five minutes of play, taking a 6-3 lead in the process and chasing starter J.F. Berube out of the game.

It all started with Justin Faulk’s first goal of the game as he sniped up stairs on Berube.

1:11 later, Jeff Skinner got in on the scoring. He was able to sneak one through the five-hole and give the road team a 4-3 lead.

Skinner’s goal chased Berube out of the game, giving Thomas Greiss the crease the rest of the way.

Things didn't start too well for the German netminder.

That was Faulk’s second of the period and it extended the lead to 5-3.

Remember how I said things didn't start well for Greiss off the bench? Yeah, I really meant that.

He let in the first shot he saw on the night, and then the second shot...

That fleury of action gave the Hurricanes a 6-3 lead for the time being. Isles rookie Josh Ho-Sang would go on to make it a 6-4 game before the end of the second period.
